the California Dept. of Parks and Recreation has sent notice of a Draft Environmental Impact Report for the
Proposed Topanga State Park General Plan. The Draft EIR may be viewed at http://parks.ca.gov/?page_id=25956 (see links to 5 sections on right side of this page) and comments are due by Jan. 23, 2012. The General Plan will establish management goals, guidelines, and objectives and will outline a number of zones including a wildlands zone setting aside over 70% of the Park's acreage for minimal development with modest camping opportunities; a cultural preserve to heighten the interpretation and protection of cultural resources; a historic zone including the former Rancho Las Lomas Celestiales (Trippet Ranch); as well as areas for resource management and recreational and interpretive programs. Comments should be directed to: Luke Serna, Park & Recreation Specialist, 8885 Rio San Diego Dr., Suite 270, San Diego, CA 92108 or by email to enviro@parks.ca.gov
